Summary note:
The seamless web application is a relatively new technology that has been steadily growing in recent years. In this project, we create a sample web application using the AngularJS framework in order to determine how feasible it is to use. Our sample application is Friendsy, a mutual matchmaking application for college students. We examine the feature set of Angular and how it affects the implementation of our sample application. In order to analyze Angular and its feasibility, we adapt criteria that are originally intended for analyzing mobile web frameworks. We concluded that AngularJS is incredibly useful and feasible for developers to adopt, and does not sacrifice the quality of the user experience.
